Book by Wolfe, Thomas
  • This massive, epic autobiographical novel is of course an American classic that has influenced other great free thinking American writers. But about 100 years since its publication, the trials and tribulations of Wolfe's tough childhood in Asheville, NC, often tend to meander and verge on the surreal, making this a real challenge for less patient or discerning readers.

    It therefore comes as no surprise that a film is about to be released (2016) about Wolfe's relationship with the great publishing editor who tackled one of Wolfe's later offerings, a million words long!.

    Most of Look Homeward, Angel is hugely entertaining as Wolfe brings his extended family and the whole of 1900s Asheville to glorious life, with especial attention to warts and all. No wonder that, after the books publication, he could not return to the town for years. As his genius and thirst for knowledge developed - including an insatiable need for books, he literally outgrew (6' 6") all around him, having to overcome crippling shyness and humilation - his time at UNC in Chapel Hill was also a rite of passage.

    This is the first book I have read anything on Kindle and I had the privilege of reading it in Asheville and Chapel Hill. Mastering Kindle's note taking or bookmark systems takes time, but in the end they worked well. It's great access gems from the tome whenever I want.

  • The real-life Wolfes were a dysfunctional family immortalized forever as the dysfunctional Gants. Broken human beings from North Carolina turned into mythical figures. A beautiful family drama and coming-of-age story, if you can survive the absolute word onslaught. Jessusss.

    It is a bonafide thicket of adjectives and metaphors. Wolfe comes from the Walt Whitman school of "why say it in one word when five will do?" This is further accentuated by his stand-in Eugene Gant, who any college graduate can uncomfortably recognize themselves in: an over-dramatic intellectual who can make a mountain out of a mole-hill and certain the world is either to pat him on the back or out to get him.

    But there's Wolfe's magic: he manages to paint the Gants and their home in Altamont, North Carolina so specifically, but you will undoubtedly find your own family in them. The witty, viceful, regretful father. The shrewd, fast-talking, aloof, and nagging mother. Siblings jealous of each others' opportunities. There is an incredible tragedy in the family in the end of the book, and it hurt me. It cut me deep. I was tearing up. And I think this book would've been useless without it.

    Would I recommend it? Not really. But it's such a rich mine, an author finding his way into his own style and coming to grips with his upbringing, that it's not a bad read either. Just be prepared to go through long stretches of "My god! Get to something good already!" Lord of the Rings-scale world-building for a little family in North Carolina.

  • What can one say about Thomas Wolfe, brilliant, tormented, unlucky, always running from those who loved him. Fell in love with women who did not love him. He was unable to sleep most nights so he wondered the streets looking always looking for something to explain his life to himself. A genius who never found peace in this life. He had very little order or discipline in his work. The book is filled with dark and beautiful description of everything around him. I will never see fall the same way as I did before I read this novel.

  • Thomas Wolfe, where have you been all my life? Hands down the best American writer of all time. I am in awe of how he captures in language the internal human experiences that I thought could never be shared. I cannot stop reading his works. It's a tragedy that he died so young.

  • I first fell in love with Thomas Wolf forty years ago, when I was in school. Since then I have read hundreds of books, but have rarely remembered any of them as well as I remember "Look Homeward Angel." I decided to re-read it as a gift To myself, and was not in the least disappointed. It was like having a five course meal instead of a snack. When authos like Hemingway introduced writing that was sparse and direct, authors like Thomas Wolfe gradually went out of fashion. More and more people wanted clean, clear language. However, I enjoyed the poetry of Wolf's writing, which focuses not so much on WHAT happened as how what happened is described. One reads this book to wallow in language rather than plot. The author is present in every sentence, his heartfelt descriptions of people, places and events. We watch, rather than identify. This book is rich, perhaps too rich for today's tastes. But it's nice to indulge once in awhile.

  • I can relate to quite a bit of Thomas Wolfe's story of growing up in North Carolina although his a male and born 56 years before me. More readable than Faulkner. He certainly had quite a memory for detail and his descriptions of his dysfunctional family are achingly true to life. Beautifully written.

  • William Faulkner said that Thomas Wolfe was probably the greatest writer of his (Faulkner's) time. This book is a
    feast for the mind. Though provincial in topic, its scope is universal. The pathos of the Gant family of Altamont is
    a microcosm of the human family experience, warts and all. The haunting refrain of "O lost and by the wind grieved,
    come back again", entreats the soul to a reverie of a world that will not come again. FCH
